The Americans List
By the Glow of the Juke Box
Conceived and compiled by Jason Eskenazi
While working as a guard at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Eskenazi began to ask photographers he knew visiting the Looking In exhibition about Robert Frank’s The Americans what their favorite image was and why. In the two years since he quit, as he himself got back out on the road again to shoot, he complied 276 photographers’ answers in a unique book destined to become a classic in photography education.
Includes contributions from Mary Ellen Mark, Joel Meyerowitz, Jeffrey Ladd, Robert Frank, Martin Parr, Philip Perkis, David Alan Harvey, Bill Burke, Josef Koudelka, John Gossage, Juliana Beasley, Sara Terry, Mark Steinmetz, Vanessa Winship, Alec Soth and many more.
